The Never Ending Battle
I can no longer use excuse number: 374 as a reason not to go to the gym. Over the weekend Allyson and I learned that our gym offers free daycare for all of its members who want to work out. Yesterday we took Jr to the gym daycare and we both worked out for 50 minutes. I did some light weight lifting and then walked for a half hour. Allyson walked for close to an hour. I'm already sore but I feel great mentally and physically.
2007, or The Year Of Captain Corky has been amazing so far. My son was born, I quit chewing tobacco, my beloved Colts won the Superbowl (surely a sign from God that it was going to be a great year for Corky, kind of like last last year when God sent me a sign by having my beloved Steelers win the Super Bowl in 2006, The year of Captain Corky). But I've got to get my weight under control!!! This is the next big battle I'm going to engage in. Over the past 11 years I've had limited success in losing weight off and on, but I won't be fooled again!
Without getting into a whole lot of details, along time ago I used to be in really good shape. I was able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, and I could lift at least 100 times my own weight, just like the common ant can, for example. My goal is to get in really good shape for the next Iron Man contest that comes through Louisville Kentucky or at least lose 30 pounds. One of the other, you know me I'm not particular.
However, this thought did cross my mind:
Today I could bring Jr to the Gym and pretend that I was going to work out and then sneak out the back door and go catch a movie. Then tomorrow after I drop Jr off at the gym I'll go bowling. My 8, 10 split needs a little work. And finally on Friday I'll go for a nice lunch downtown, and maybe even have a cocktail or two. By Sunday I should be ready to start seriously working out.
